Team News: Stevenage
The Stevenage boss Steve Evans has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match with a fully injury-free group to pick from.
Team News: Lincoln City
Thanks to a mainly healthy squad, there is only the sole fitness worry for the Lincoln City manager Tom Shaw to contend with. Lewis Montsma (Cruciate ligament injury) won’t be playing here.
Our thinking is that Stevenage will most probably create enough chances to score more than one against Lincoln City, who won’t find it easy to find the back of the net.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a comfortable 2-0 win for Stevenage at the end of this one.
